The nasty, scamming browser hijacking pop up ads

To the website owners:

I am very thankful for this site and appreciative that it is available for us all to use.

However, the increase of your nasty browser hijacking pop up ads is making me not recommend your site to other people to use and look for alternatives to use such as the Pirate Bay myself.

These nasty browser hijacking pop up ads are specifically designed to scam uneducated/unsavvy members of the public out of money by pretending to be a Microsoft system message warning to user that their computers have been hijacked and their information is being stolen.

You know the drill - to stop this the user is prompted to call a bogus Microsoft number before all their files are rendered unusable or their computer becomes disabled. In the meantime, the browser window has been hijacked and is totally unusable/frozen/unable to be closed so that they only way to get rid of the scam window is to task manager the browser shut or restart your computer – meaning whatever you were doing in other browser windows is also shut down.

This is a massive scam and it shows the complete moral bankruptcy of this website’s owners for allowing that sort of scamming to be directly linked and promoted by this website.

None of us mind a few pop up ads so you can recoup your website running costs and make some money; but the fact that you allow and endorse these particular scamming ads is really low. Punishing your fellow torrent community members by subjecting them to scams.

Could you please explain why you allow these scams to be promoted on your website so that those of us who are bothered by this can understand your position and make decisions about whether to return to your website.

Thanks.

It threatens to delete your HD if you close this window.

Yes that's one of the various scam pop ups.

Here's the one that came up on my screen before:

Advertising space is sold to advertisers. What they do with that space is to be taken up with them.

1. What are 'unsavvy' users doing on a pirate website?

2. Why don't you, a 'savy' user, know how to stop these ads (it's really easy), and why don't you tell your friends as well so that they can STOP all advertisement from bothering them on every site (that's what I do)

3. If you feel that the pirate bay is as good as us, then please feel free to tell your 'friends' about it (just remind them to make sure that they don't download software as there are quite a few fakes)

4. endorse (verb) [T] UK ​ /ɪnˈdɔːs/ US ​ /ɪnˈdɔːrs/
- to make a public statement of your approval or support for something or someone
example: The Council is expected to endorse the committee's recommendations.

SOURCE

Please enlighten me and tell me where have we endorsed this advertising?



Educate the uneducated members that piracy is NOT a joke... rather than a browser hijack, they can face fines and jail time. Spread the word

Thanks for your response.

Essentially, you've just told me to go and fuck myself.

This is a perfectly reasonable topic to post about. It's not good enough to blame someone else for YOUR ad space that you are selling.

I'm sorry I wasted the time but you've given me the answer I was looking for.

If i wanted to , I would have told you to go and fuck yourself. I didn't..

Instead I replied reasonably and stated the facts.

If you think or feel that i meant something else, then be it.

Nobody stopped you from posting the topic or commenting and giving your views.

If you're looking for a particular answer, and mine was different, then i'm sorry i hurt your feelings. But just remember that when you post a topic and someone posts an opinion different to yours, take it like a man.

you said you will go to pirate bay, didn't you know that pirate bay also have some pop-ups? Even though the registered user face some pop-ups. I'm also use pirate bay so know. And here if you a registered user then you will not face any pop-ups, And last thing is, running a website cost money. So you have to compromise with the ad. No one can do nothing about it.

The real joke is when people sign up to trash a site because they lack proper skills to internet

Hmm.. you only created your account 20 minutes before
complaining about "persistent" ADs. Have you been lurking
as a Visitor for awhile and still liked the site enough to join?

I've heard it said that "Members" experience less of this than
Visitors. I believe the Members using a real browser, set up
correctly experience even less. I myself see NO ads here,
but I DO get warned about malicious activity at login.

-Please enjoy your stay!

Proper skills to internet? Make sense you babbling fool
The site is infested with annoying ads and all for the purpose of revenue without any consideration for users

I have taken all reasonable steps to block these fucking ads including a number of ad blockers and scripts but the site is still a massive shitbowl of annoying ads

pathetic!

I can read just fine, can you?
You are using ad blockers to block popups and wondering why they are not blocked...
Genius thought.... try an actual popup blocker. IE/FF/Chrome all have one built in and as crappy as IE is, it's blocker still does the trick everytime
Never seen one ad or had a redirect/popup actually open.
I don't even need an ad blocker since there are no ads for logged in users.
